Vitesse take on the visitors Basel at the GelreDome in the first leg match of UEFA Europa League third qualification round. The match will be played in Arnhem on Thursday, August 9th.
Vitesse have changed their managers a lot recently but their playing style has been the same all the time. The Vitas were playing really bad in the defense last season and this season nothing has changed. The only rescue for the team has been their offensive line. They`ve scored a lot in the off-season and also scored 5 goals in the two matches against Viitorul from Romania in the second qualification round. However, Vitesse also conceded 3 goals in those games. Talking about the friendly matches for Vitesse this summer they`ve had 4 and the overall goal difference after them has been 7-8. So there were almost 4 goals scored in every match Vitesse played. Furthermore in the end of the last season Vitesse often had over 2.5 goals scored in their Eredivisie matches.

Basel have been looking weak in the start of the new season. In the second qualification round of UEFA Champions League the team lost cleanly to PAOK with an overall 1-5 score after two matches. In their local league the Bebbi were playing bad too. The first tour of the Swiss Super League had ended for them with a 1-2 loss to St. Gallen and the second tour ended with a 1-1 draw against Neuchatel Xamax. Only in the third tour of the Swiss Super League Basel were able to beat Grasshopper with a 4-2 score. It`s worth noting that Basel have conceded in their every official match this season. The defense has been playing just horrible and the offense just couldn`t cover the allowed goals.
Basel is going to have a lot of problems in the upcoming fixture against Vitesse. Even though the class of the Swiss team is higher Vitess have a better offensive line.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored.
